Honda restored Chevy truck in honor of its own historyJune 19, 2019
The pickup was restored by the North American representation of a Japanese company to celebrate Honda’s 60th anniversary in the United States.
What do you associate with the Japanese company Honda? In most cases, the answer will be associated with models of Civic, Pilot, or, perhaps, the NSX supercar. This should come as no surprise, because today Honda is one of the most successful automakers in the world. However, in 1959 everything was a little different. Then the manufacturer was just starting its way, and he did not start with cars.
Then the guys from Honda made mostly motorcycles, and to deliver them to their new dealerships, then opening in Southern California (USA), the brand bought a small fleet of pickups of Chevrolet.
The project, in which one of these trucks was completely restored, was completed in time for the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the American Honda office at the company’s headquarters in California. In order to properly recreate the classic Chevy pickup, Honda also purchased a pair of vintage motorcycles for the truck, in particular, the CB160 and Honda 50.
Probably 60 years ago, few people thought, including representatives of Chevrolet, that Japanese company Honda would not only dominate the world motorcycle market, but also turn into a major automobile competitor? In any case, we are very impressed that Honda is paying tribute to its history by investing its time and money in order to maintain friendly relations with other brands.
Not so long ago, we wrote that Honda is releasing a “new” CR-V with a different face and name.
